SKI TRIPS FOR 2012
Ski Week - Big Sky, Montana - January 27 - February 4, 2012. This is our official Hawaii Ski Week trip for 2012! Full packages start at $1582.
1) Ski in/out Huntley hotel room with a free breakfast buffet. The hotel is located in the Village and has two Queen beds in the room with a small refrigerator. Double occupancy.
2) Walk in/out Bighorn condo's, 3 bedroom/3 bath, good for 6 occupants. This is a short walk to the slopes and you can connect via the Poma lift. See this link for more details on a poma lift. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platter_lift
Your lift tickets will be good at Big Sky mountain. To
ski on both mountains (Moonlight Basin and Big Sky), there is an additional fee
that you can pay at any lift ticket office (we thought it easier if you
coordinate with friends on what day to go, meet at the ticket office, pay
(approximately $27 more) and ski on TWO mountains.)
We are also planning a Yellowstone Snowmobile day trip - if you're interested in that, purchase only a 5-day lift ticket package to be able to make it as it will be an all day trip. Ask Hawaii Ski Club members who have already skied Big Sky, and they will tell you that the highlight of this trip to Montana is snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park. Snowmobile through Yellowstone in winter, and you will find yourself amidst a place like none you have experienced before. A Nordic wonderland. Yellowstone and the surrounding area are comprised of many geological and geothermal wonders like Old Faithful and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. In addition a wide variety of wild animals like bison, wolves, bald eagles, elk and trumpeter swans abound in the park. Over-snow vehicles trek into the heart of this snowy paradise so you will get close to these natural wonders, frosty bison, sculpted ghost- trees, steamy thermal pools, and endless vistas. This snowmobile adventure is an all-day experience and will take place mid-week during Ski Week. The total cost of this sidetrip has not yet been determined since most winter tour companies are on summer hiatus, but as soon as the 2012 prices are posted, the trip committee will get the details to you. Ski club members who want to experience snowmobiling (or taking a snowcoach instead) through Yellowstone National Park will have to sign up and pay in advance of our trip to Big Sky since these tours are limited in size and numbers by the National Park Service. Anita will be on hand at the Kick-Off Meeting, October 6, to provide additional information on the Snowmobile Trip.
